West Side family wants driver who hit loved one to turn themselves in

2 people hit from behind while walking in 4000 block of Roosevelt Avenue

SAN ANTONIO – Members of a West Side family want the driver responsible for critically injuring their brother in a hit-and-run crash to turn him or herself in.

"That's pretty upsetting. It really scared me because that’s my little youngest brother," said Paul Anthony Herrera's older brother, Adam. 

Herrera, a woman and another man were walking in the South Side in the 4000 block of Roosevelt Avenue about 12:45 a.m. when a vehicle hit the woman and Herrera from behind.  

Both victims suffered serious bodily injuries and were rushed to the hospital.

"He just got out of surgery. He's not talking yet or anything. We'll go visit him this afternoon," Adam said. 

Police said the driver, following the accident, quickly drove away but left parts of his or her car at the scene. 

"As far as the people that did that, I hope they surrender themselves," Adam said.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case. The investigation is ongoing.
